We will be launching a NEW online catalogue on April 6th. To accommodate this and other changes, the Library will be closed from March 30th to April 5th. During the closure, this website will not be available and members will not be able to place holds or renew items. Your saved lists and shelf information will be available in the new catalogue. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience.
The Ugly Truth About Small Business
50 Never-saw-it-coming Things That Can Go Wrong-- and What You Can Do About It
Being an entrepreneur is scary. From late payments to bank crisis, often the future of your business rides on one crucial decision--one you have to make all on your own. But it doesn't have to be that way. Others have faced the same problems, and for the first time have gathered to share their advice. Through stories and lessons from entrepreneurs who have been there, you'll discover how to handle such situations as:
-- We didn't know if anyone would show up -- I lost 25 percent of my business in one day -- We trusted the wrong people -- I got sick and couldn't work -- My customer wouldn't pay
Knowing is half the battle. Be prepared and ready to win.
